Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore 80 Series Gas Dryer... fails to ignite, even tho it fired up when I replaced the white sensor in the filter-side exit, which was said to be the likeliest culprit. When I had the back-panel off, it worked. With the panel on, it failed. Any ideas ?

I HAVE A KENMORE 80 SERIES GAS DRYER. WHEN YOU TURN IT ON IT FIRES UP AND GETS HOT. AFTER A WHILE (5-10 MIN'S) FIRE GOSE OUT AND WILL NOT COME BACK ON.


Hello,
If what happens is the flame comes on when it first starts,after the flame goes off you see the igniter glows then goes off but no flame,the coils that open the gas valve are working while thier cool but once the dryer gets running,when warm to hot the gas valve coils wont open the gas valve so when the igniter comes on and no flame the coils have failed to open gas valve and need to be replaced, all manufactures use the same coil supplied by one parts supplier, and them not opening the valve when warm is a very common occurence regardless of what brand gas dryer it is.
The part number for the coils is 279834 they could be picked up from your local appliance parts store for under $20 or online at;

I have a Kenmore 80 series heavy duty dryer that is not giving out much heat.What should I be looking for to solve the problem?


Is it gas or electrric? Either one i would check the dryer vent hoses. Check the lint trap as well. The lint trp is the exit for the hot air to circulate. Sometimes if clogged with lint these dryers could go either way they could over heat and cause a fire or cause the element or thermostat to fail. The electric dryers have a thermostat and a heating element. Those tend to go bad. Back panel should be taken off and unplug unit check.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

Kenmore dryer does not heat


I have a kenmore series 80. Had the same problem...the fix was replacing the gas coils. The dryer would get hot for about 10-15min then nothing. The gas would stop firing but you could see the igniter glow over and over again. Hope this helps.

Dryer heat only at room temp.


You have a thermal fuse and a hi limit thermostat and a flame sensor to check.
Could be any one of the 3 or all 3.
